  • Duranguense veterans Patrulla 81 are denying rumors that they are breaking up. A rep for the band released a statement: "Patrulla 81 tiene mucho que dar, es falso que nos separamos, al contrario estamos más fuertes y concentrados en el lanzamiento del nuevo disco (Patrulla 81 has a lot to give, we're not separating, we're actually stronger than ever and concentrating on the release of our new album)."
  • "The more I get to know [Dolores Huerta], the more I am impressed and a little frightened about making sure that I get it right,” says Rosario Dawson who will be playing labor leader Dolores Huerta in the upcoming Cesar Chavez biopic.

  • A spike in undocumented youth crossing the border has turned a San Antonio Air Force base into a temporary shelter for 100 undocumented minors. The children, mostly males over 14, are mainly from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. Although the reason for the spike is unknown, the organization Kids In Need of Defense (KIND) told The Huffington Post that "many children who come to the United States alone do so to escape domestic abuse, political turmoil and human trafficking."
  • Selena Gomez and UNICEF are raising awareness about the malnutrition crisis in the Sahel region of West and Central Africa. “Let’s make #SahelNOW a trending topic,” Selena Gomez tweeted.

Gizmodo advises users to "only download Instagram from Google Play, as apps within the marketplace are subject to Google's more stringent vetting."
  • U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has apologized for the behavior of U.S. soldiers who took photgraphs of themselves next to corpses and body parts of dead Afghan fighters. An unknown U.S. soldier leaked 16 photos to the The Los Angeles Times, which only published two of the gruesome photos. The Army said it has launched an official investigation. (Warning: graphic images).
